Re: Stopping Propranolol
Sorry it's taken me so long to respond to this, but thank you both for your replies.
I've been toying with the idea of coming off the medication for a couple of weeks now, however I'm not entirely sure whether I am ready or not. I'm thinking perhaps of waiting until the start of the new year and then attempting it, but again, it's not set in stone. They seem to be working rather well, however I have this new-found health anxiety with my heart, thinking I have heart disease and that if I stop the tablets then something will happen. Although I think that anyway, despite there being no real evidence to support it. I am admittedly overweight and also get chest pain quite frequently, but the doctors don't seem at all concerned and as mentioned, my ECG seems to have been clear. The chest pain seems to be from unknowingly tensing my muscles and not being able to relax as I used to.
The trouble with the slow-release version I am taking is that they can't be cut in half, so I can't try to wean myself off them. I guess what I really need to do is wait until I feel I'm ready and then perhaps have a quick word with the doctor. If I happen to be on them for a few more months then maybe he'd want me to take a smaller dose rather than go cold turkey.
Anyway, thanks again for the replies and good luck if you do decide to come off them, Anna.
